Dr. Janet Lapp hits on the key ingredients of effective leadership in this compilation of her keynote speeches. When you’re a leader, getting results hinges on your attitude, your ability to inspire, and your ability to guide.
Citing Moses as an example, she points out that the final destination of the ancient Israelites really wasn’t a land of “milk and honey,” but he was able to use this image to inspire his people to get out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. “Your people are always asking you for a map,” she concludes. “But there isn’t a map. There’s only a compass.”
Since today’s business climate is anything but usual, Dr. Janet Lapp’s presentations go way beyond an ordinary keynote. Able to present in three languages (English, French, and Spanish), Janet equips organizations that are going through fast change with the skills they need to thrive in the future. Janet instills in leaders resilience, flexibility, optimism and courage, helping attendees spread these qualities to their teams after her program has concluded.
The world is changed by big thinkers willing to create big problems with big solutions. Live at the edge, where forward action and creative thought lives. Dump resignation and cynicism, and think in possibilities.
People can change overnight if they have to. With the right systems in place, people can change long-term bad habits instantly. So stop blaming, and start moving.
Everyone in an organization has ownership for the success of the business. When just one person decides to make a difference, miraculous changes occur. Each small act that delights a customer, serves a colleague, resolves a conflict, or improves a process, becomes a force for positive change. Stop making excuses, take action and inspire others to follow you.

Dare to Lead the Adventure of Change

Are your engagement scores lower than you would like?
Janet will assess your culture, give specific suggestions for areas that are stuck and those that are flowing well, tell the truth about what needs to happen and follow up to make sure it gets done.
Your program, “Plant Your Feet Firmly in Mid-Air,” was right on target.
